Congressional Report on Honduran Situation at Capitol Hill Cubans

Congressional Report on Honduran Situation

at 11:51 PM Saturday, September 26, 2009
The non-partisan Congressional Research Service ("CRS") has issued a "Report for Congress" (LL File No. 2009-002965) on the Honduran Constitution and the removal from office of President Manuel Zelaya.

Here is the Executive Summary:

The Supreme Court of Honduras has constitutional and statutory authority to hear cases against the President of the Republic and many other high officers of the State, to adjudicate and enforce judgments, and to request the assistance of the public forces to enforce its rulings. The Constitution no longer authorizes impeachment, but gives Congress the power to disapprove of the conduct of the President, to conduct special investigations on issues of national interest, and to interpret the Constitution. In the case against President Zelaya, the National Congress interpreted the power to disapprove of the conduct of the President to encompass the power to remove him from office, based on the results of a special, extensive investigation. The Constitution prohibits the expatriation of Honduran citizens.

Meanwhile, David Freddoso of the Washington Examiner added context to the Report's findings:

- The Honduran Congress appears to have acted properly in deposing President Manuel Zelaya. Unlike in the United States, the Honduran Congress has the last word when it comes to interpreting the Constitution. Although there is no provision in Honduras's Constitution for impeachment as such, the body does have powers to disapprove of the president's official acts, and to replace him in the event that he is incapable of performing his duties. Most importantly, the Congress also has the authority to interpret exactly what that means.

- The Supreme Court was legally entitled to ask the military to arrest Zelaya. The high court, which is the constitutional venue for trials of the president and other high-ranking officials, also recognized the Congress's ouster of Zelaya when it referred his case back down to a lower court afterward, on the grounds that he was "no longer a high-ranking government official."

- The military did not act properly in forcibly expatriating Zelaya. According to the CRS report and other news stories, Honduran authorities are investigating their decision, which the military justified at the time as a means of preventing bloodshed. In fact, Zelaya should have been given a trial, and if convicted of seeking reelection, he would have lost his citizenship. But he is still a citizen now, and the Constitution forbids the expatriation of Honduran citizens by their government.

- The proper line of succession was followed after Zelaya's ouster. Because there was no Vice President in office when Zelaya was removed (he had resigned to run for president), Micheletti was the proper successor, as he had been president of the Congress.

Re: Congressional Report on Honduran Situation at Capitol Hill Cubans

Of Course, here's another great post at Capitol Hill Cubans that proves without a doubt the double standard currently in the media and the political world...


The Permanent Coup d' Etat
at 12:40 PM


Also, the Quote of the Week:

"There is a great deal of concern and protest from the governments of Latin America, North America and Europe about what is happening in Honduras, but at the same time, there's a great deal of silence and complicity towards the permanent coup d'etat by the Cuban regime against its people.

In the world one only hears about what is taking place in the U.S. Naval Base in Guantanamo, but the terror against citizens and the degrading and inhumane practices in the prisons that we are condemning, are taking place in the other Guantanamo, the one no one talks about, which encompasses all of Cuba."

- Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas, head of the Christian Liberation Movement (MCL) in a statement expressing concern over the conditions of Cuba's political prisoners, September 25, 2009.
